The SP is fast becoming one of my favoritesYeah, I did the next one, too, but when he pulled out the Chiappa, after showing those classic Colt and Smiths, I had to shake my head. ???? Also, no mention of the Ruger SP, which should be on his list for the SPs ability to withstand the heaviest of use that would have those Smiths and Colts back in the shop. Of course, I don't expect his top five or anyone else's top five to necessarily agree with my top five. Still, one thing you NEVER have to do with an SP is baby it or worry about loads that are too hot. To my way of thinking, that's a great feature for a carry gun.
Yes ..................... I don't shoot any +P in my revolvers ...... The 38 super is a good round in that gun . The 642 is a backup gun for me that I can shoot from the front pocket of a jacket and not worry about the hammer jamming up and I can walk around with my hand on the gun and not brandishing the gun when walking in a bad neighborhood ......Hey TGR do you know that the 642 will shoot and eject the 38 super? Check it out.
A Glock 26/27 is a super gun , but NOT a good gun to shoot in a pocket like a 642 SW hammerless . My 22 NAA mag I carry 24/7 is a super bug gun .It is small and lightMy signature shows I like revolvers. Semi auto .22 rifles function much better than semi .22 handguns, so the 10/22 is an exception. Got the Guardian simply because it's tiny and light, even compared to a S&W Airweight. The vast majority of past guns were revolvers, too.
